The Associated Press - April 28, 2019 9:55 am

HUGO, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says that three children wounded when a police officer fired at a robbery suspect suffered non-life threatening injuries.
OSBI spokeswoman Brook Arbeitman said Saturday that the 5-, 4-, and 1-year-old children were taken to a Tulsa-area hospital following Friday’s shooting in Hugo. Their names and conditions were not released.
Olivia Hill, the children’s mother, told KXII-TV that the 4-year-old was shot in the head, the 1-year-old in the face and that the 5-year-old has a skull fracture. Her 2-year-old child was uninjured.
Arbeitman says Hill and the 4 children were in a truck with 21-year-old robbery suspect William Devaughn Smith when gunfire broke out as officers approached him.
